Do you have any idea for better collocation?

So I chose decided to study chemical engineering at the university to pursue my passion since at high school we just studied basic concepts.


I believe basic concepts to be perhaps the most suitable and common collocation in that context.

Alternatives include fundamental concepts and the basics.

Furthermore, I think your sentence will read better as:
